German Chocolate Bundt Cake with Coconut Pecan Frosting

Chicken Legs’ birthday is coming up, so I’ve been testing out some recipes for his birthday cake. He LOVES German chocolate cake, so I whipped up this German Chocolate Bundt Cake last weekend to see if it was a contender for the big day. Well, not only is this a contender, it is the winner! He loved it! Moist German chocolate cake, homemade chocolate ganache, coconut, and pecans – what’s not to love?!?!?!

How to Make Easy German Chocolate Bundt Cake

This cake is super easy to make. It starts with a box of german chocolate cake mix and a can of coconut pecan frosting. Place both in a mixing bowl, add water, eggs, and oil. Mix with a hand mixer until the cake batter is smooth. Pour the batter in a bundt cake pan and bake.

Once the cake has cooled top it with a quick homemade chocolate ganache made from chocolate chips, heavy cream, and a touch of corn syrup. Finally, sprinkle the cake with coconut and pecans. YUM!

How to Serve Bundt Cake

This cake is AH-MAZ-ING! Super easy to make and even easier to eat. We like to top the cake with some fresh whipped cream and a sprig of mint. It is also equally delicious with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Feel free to pop your cake slice in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up. I wouldn’t go more than 7 or 8 seconds. Perfection!

This cake is perfect for a potluck or party! You can make it a day or two in advance and store it in an air-tight container.
